Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic Starts Off Summer Season
This past Saturday, June 1st, New York City’s finest took a boat across the Hudson to Liberty State Park in New Jersey to watch the 12th Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. The tournament was headed by polo-darlings Nacho Figueras and Delfina Blaquier, duo for Team Veuve which won eleven to ten.
Veuve Clicquot brought polo back to the city in 2008 after a 70-year hiatus. Uniting champagne lovers and sports aficionados, the Polo Classic is the unofficial summer kickoff, gathering celebrities, models, and everyone in between. At the helm of this year’s event was Julianne Moore who threw the first pitch to commence the game. She was joined by Jennifer Lawrence (sporting a hefty new engagement ring), Emily Ratajkowski with her beau, Michael B. Jordan, Gayle King, Eric Rutherford, and many more. DJ Isaac Hindin-Miller was in charge of the musical ambiance. As the tournament grew hotter (quite literally), bubbly was poured all around, and dancing shoes quickly came off. Another successful polo season commences on the East Coast.
